Conor McGregor's Coach Drops Huge Hint That UFC Star Is Returning Soon
Conor McGregor's head coach John Kavanagh has dropped a huge hint that his star pupil is back in camp ahead of a UFC comeback.
McGregor, 31, hasn't fought since his devastating submission defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018 at UFC 229.
But the former 'champ-champ' is set to return to the famed Octagon after announcing his return at a press conference in Moscow.
And Kavanagh has fueled speculation that McGregor's return is imminent by posting a revealing message on social media.
"Due to reasons @SBG_Ireland is no longer open to non-members during the hours of 10am to 4pm. Please feel free to drop in outside these hours for pics or to visit our shop etc. Thank you for understanding," he wrote on Twitter.
